What do you do when the severed head of a nine-year-old boy is found on a London beach with the eyes missing and replaced by diamonds and a prime suspect is your ex-fiancée’s dad?
If you’re Morrison Shepherd — D-list celebrity, tabloid star and son of a dead former star soccer player — you assemble your crack group of occult crime experts, including a virgin porn star with a forensic science degree, an autistic registered sex offender who has visions, and a tribal magic expert, who happens to be your ex, and get to work on figuring out who the real killer is and why they did it.
The first issue of The Vinyl Underground, written by Si Spencer, illustrated by Simon Gane and inked by Toronto’s Cameron Stewart, offers up great characters, an intriguing mystery and a sense of humour as black as a London night.
